look up any word, like thot:

Emo
-Emos reach the peak of their agony, the resulting tears throw the world into flooding for 40 days and 40 nights.

Iron Age:
-Roman businessmen went bankrupt when people preferred seeing emos beat up rather than watching gladiatorial fights.

Middle Ages:
-The Mongols flipped out and started killin everybody because their tribute of concubines from china turned out to be a bunch of emos (guys and girls, the senders couldnt tell the difference) who broke every time a mongol tried to hump one.

-buddhists went celebate after deciding that relationships with emos were too much of a pain in the ass since they kept whining about how they "wont call the next day", how they didnt say "i will love you forever" back and how the buddhists didnt show much interest when they tried to make them read the dark poetry the emos "poured out my emotions for you" into.

-Aztecs decide to use emos exclusively for their sacrifices since they were more fun to watch, the gods, also enjoying the spectacle, reward their subjects with unparalleled riches.

Renaissance:
-Emos illigitimately infiltrated the samurai bloodline, and thus spread the habits of not being able to fight for shit, being afraid of christians, and killing themselves when the going gets tough, they popularize the term "harakiri" for the aformentioned activity coz it sounds more poetic than "seppuku". the resulting pussiness renders the country so weak it is conquered by foreigners and decimates the samurai bloodline (the contrary could be the reason for ninja superiority and kick-ass ways of life...lesson: never mix with emos, its true they're easy but come on...is it really worth it).

-Spanish conquistadors render native americans helpless by showing them emos, emos are just too fucking sorry a sight...

Imperial Age:
-The Marquis de Sade discovers the full use of the emo.

Modern Age:
-The united states embarks on the largest and most brutal cleansing operation in history, they launch a massive campaign on europe and japan, especially the latter, in the hope that they will kill all existing emos, the campaign is covered up and an excuse of their actions is sold as "World War II", the campaign failed miserably as americans had not realised that the largest emo concentration lied in their own lands.

21st century:
-With accusations that emos could be close species to humans, emo hunting goes down and they begin to thrive.

Future speculation:
-Due to increasing emo populations, and increase in being annoying fucks, people grow more impatient to their existance (except emo sympathizers, pussies who claim that emos are blessed with being in touch with the emotions of the universe, a.k.a. my ass) people speculate that a new world order will rise to rid humanity from their revolting existance...and all their pussy bullshit.

Emo
Emo = Emotional Hardcore

Contrary to popular belief,
Emo is not about being depressed or cutting,
it's not short for emotional,
it has nothing to do with teenage posers who follow the trend of pretending to be bisexual, depressed, and wearing all black.
It's not a fashion.
The fashion that's commonly referred to as "emo fashion",
is actually called "scene".
And MCR and Fallout Boy are NOT emo.

In actuality, It's a branch off of hardcore punk that started in the mid 80s with the punk band, Rites of Spring.
They hated the glorified violence and restrained music that infected the D.C. hardcore scene,
and took hardcore to a greater level of experimentation
with more emotional lyrics and more melodic instruments.

Soon after, a surge of new bands started forming and creating their own adaption of the style that Rites of Spring innovated.
The summer of 1985 became known as "revolution summer".
Good emo bands from "revolution summer" include:
Rites of Spring, Embrace, Moss Icon, Dag Nasty, Gray Matter,
Nation of Ulysses, and Fire Party.

After the disbanding of Rites of Spring,
Ian MacKaye (from Embrace) and Guy Picciotto (from Rites of Spring) formed the post-hardcore band Fugazi in the early 90s. who influenced bands such as Sunny Day Real Estate, Far, Braid, and Jimmy Eat World.
In my opinion, Sunny Day Real Estate are to mall emo, (the music that's commonly referred to as emo today)
as Rites of Spring are to emo.
They started the whole movement of mainstream "emo" bands.

Happening at the same time,
was the the unground movement of screamo.
Screamo sounded similar to emo,
but louder and with a lot more screaming and slightly different song structures.
Screamo started with bands such as Antioch Arrow, Palatka,
Portraits of the Past, and The Swing Kids.
The music comprised of brutal yet somewhat melodic guitars, loud, fast drums, song structures that switch from quiet to loud, and obviously, screaming vocals.

One thing that's not true is when people say real emo is a dead genre.
because, while mainstream "emo" has taken over MTV and the radio, an underground emo/screamo scene still exists.
Circle Takes the Square, Raein, Daitro, Haram, 1905, and ...Who Calls So Loud, City of Caterpillar are all examples of emo (and screamo) bands from the last eight years, most of them are still existing.
It's not a dead genre, you just have to look for the real deal.

Emo
To me, it's a label. A stupid steriotype.
Emo's ARE NOT wrist cutters. Wrist cutters are wrist cutters.

Emo's can laugh and smile.

It's not a bad damn thing! Some of my best friends are emoish. I don't see why people like to make fun of them.

MY CHEMICAL ROMANCE IS NOT EMO!

Not all emos where tight pants.

We dont go and cry every time we get made fun of. Some of us can beat your ass :]

And that is my definition of emo.

If you don't like it, then screw you :]
Prep: Fawking emo!

There are lots of different types of emos and they dont all cut or hate everything.
Emos pretty much love music. Its a big part of their lives. Not all emos cut themselves tho some do. If they do, its usually for a good reason and not just planned out for attention (unless they are wannabe emos)They have a certain style and many people hate them but I really dont understand why because they are just kids trying to find who they really are. They probably really do have hard lives. most people dont make shit up like that ok? if you have a good life i dont see why you would. Lots of them are looking for love. I know I am. So Dont judge them.

attention seeking whores.
Emo kid: Maybe if I dye my hair black, cut, write poetry, have sex with other emos and take a sick myspace pic of it, I will get the attention I crave.
